    THE SEVILLE "FERIA" - THE BIGGEST AND THE FIRST OF SPAIN'S YEARLY ROUND OF FESTIVALS - OPENED ON TUESDAY (APRIL 23).

    THE EIGHT-DAY ROUND OF DANCING, RIDING, BULLFIGHTS AND DRINKING WAS ORIGINALLY A HORSE-TRADING FAIR. NOW IT IS ONE OF SPAIN'S BEST KNOWN FESTIVALS, A SOCIETY EVENT WHICH ATTRACTS TOURISTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

    THE TENT-LINED STREETS ARE FILLED EACH DAY WITH HORSES, CARRIAGES AND DANCERS. WOMEN WEAR THE COLOURFUL "GITANA" GYPSY TRADITIONAL DRESS.

    HOTELS AND PRIVATE HOUSES IN SEVILLE ARE FILLED TO CAPACITY AND THE PACE OF THE CARNIVAL GETS WILDER AS THE DAYS GO BY.
